Since early 2000, Montana Candleworks has been manufacturing highly scented natural candles. Brian Johansson, the owner and founder, started in the candle business from a marketing and sales position. Brian worked as national sales and marketing director for major American candle companies like Aroma Naturals in Irvine California, Salt City Candles in Salt Lake City, Utah and Our Secret in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Brian and his team started their manufacturing journey, knowing it could be special under the magic of the Montana big sky. Brian started in a small rental facility in Amsterdam Montana, renting a announcement area at a horse roping arena. They knew the type of candles they wanted to make and sell by combing what was good from each of the companies they worked for. After an arduous testing process, they developed a highly scented, clean burning, competitively priced American made candle under the Big Sky of Montana candle line.
From its own 6,000 sq foot Dillon, Montana facility, Montana Candleworks can now handle every step of production in house. From logos, design printing, wax, and even custom fragrance design.
